Conquer your Addictions

This Blog explores how addictions, even though they are not considered murderers, are roaming free in our world and must be addressed if we are to ascend to a higher level.

Do you see it?

I don’t blame you, I didn’t either, not at first.

This is what I have so far.

There's a group of murderers reigning free around the world.

They are not bound by conspiracies, countries, or cliques.

They are above all known pay grades.

They don't even have registered IDs.

Hold on, that is not completely true.

They are known by everyone, but no one acknowledges having ever seen their IDs.

Have we succumbed to some global conspiracy to strip human beings of our right to make BAD decisions?

Or have we been tricked into ONLY making BAD decisions?

Do you see it?

Ok, let me explain a bit more.

My investigations have led me across the globe and I'm getting the same answers from different cultures.

Why are we so hung up on the "Silent Killer?"

Some say it's smoke, others say it's drug, many claim that it's weed.

One guy from Canada even said it was a pharmaceutical-grade drug.

One from London said it was America.

Do these kill human beings?

Yes, they do.

Do the people know these are killers?

Yes, they do.

They have to come off your list, you’re looking for murderers that no one acknowledges, but everyone knows.

Where would such a murderer exist?

My first clue came from a random Youtube Video from a woman talking about her anguish from dating in Atlanta Ga (ATL).

Of course, Google's Algorithm sent this to me, so normally, I would bypass this, but sometimes, clues come in time.

At the right time and ON time while I am IN time. Isn't it about time something happened right?

If you'd like to join me in the interrogation room, I'll be there in five minutes.

I have to go the vending machine and get me a pack of cookies.

You think the video is a rant about dating, are you sure?

Is she complaining about dating, about lying, about how black treat each other, or about ethics?

Is she hurt by being rejected, being used, being coerced, or by being useless?

And does her pain allow her the privilege, nay I say, the right, to post about a video about it?

Does she have the right to do this?

Let’s go over the video again, did you miss something?

STDs - check.

Double Lives - check.

Scams - check.

Down Low Brothers - check.

Homeless men - check.

Loserville - check.


No problem, let’s pull out my swiss army tool, the Moral Premise. Let’s look at the problems again.

Do you see it?

No, not the answer, the faint residue of Astral Energy around the issues.

STDs is colored a strong dark gray.

Double Lives is colored a soft gray.

You notice all of them are colored in different shades of gray.

What does gray mean?

Gray means compromise and it is considered unemotional, detached, gloom, and depression.

So it's not how we respond, but it's what happens that is valuable?

Now we’re getting somewhere, these stem from one cause, but which cause?

Let’s run the numbers again.

Virtue is NOT dating and the vice is Dating. No, that's wrong.

Virtue is choosing to NOT date and the vice is choosing TO date. Hold on, you’re off a bit.

Let's try this again.

Virtue is staying TRUE to yourself and the vice is losing yourself by dating.

So, you have truth vs loss; but, what makes humans leave truth to experience loss?

Let’s run the numbers again.

STDs, Double Lives, Scams, Down Low Brothers, and being Homeless.

Remember, these are all caused by ONE THING.

An addiction.

Don’t get mad, I know you’re confused . . . could it really be that simple?

But that’s one side of the coin.

On the other side, look at how we mask the truth.

We lie to ourselves everyday.

And we use this lie without even knowing what we're doing.

Every time we use it, we participate in LYING.

The word we use to trick ourselves is a HABIT.

Habit is the effect and addiction is the cause.

Do you see it?

The murderers are still running rampant and there's nothing we can do to stop them.

Alcohol, Smoking, Meat, Sweets, Sex, Trap Music, Weed, Gossip, Social Media, Selfies, Texting, Jesus, Shoes, Shopping, and dozens of others.

Should we be embarrassed or ashamed?

I should be embarrassed because I’m eating cookies.

Maybe I should.

Or maybe we all should.

Ask yourself, have you conquered all your addictions today?
